Can you believe that Easter is this upcoming weekend? I sure can’t! If you’re anything like me, you are just starting to think about what to get for your kiddos Easter baskets. We always seem to have a huge stash of candy post holidays so this year I’m working on candy-less Easter baskets. With two young kids, I like switching out our toys often and introducing new and fun activities that everyone can enjoy. Educational toys are some of my favorites as I find that we tend to use them more often and we are able to gain some new skills at the same time.
This year we focused on items that encouraged learning and motor skills that could be used by our toddler and preschooler. Many of these gifts encourage and educate on colors, learning, grasp, music and being physically active. I always like to load their baskets with a mix of items they want, things they need and a few yummies that taste great, but are healthy too.
This years baskets were loaded with so many fun products! Most of these products are available on Amazon Prime so you can order them just in time for Easter.
